A stunning Sunday morning at Injebreck

The MS&CC’s final festive fling took place on 7th January at Injebreck in brilliant sunshine and with a light mostly North-Easterly breeze, quite a contrast to last year’s wet and windy (but warmer) weather.

8 boats turned out on a forecast of around 5 knots of breeze from the East expecting to find it flat calm but as always Injebreck was not as expected with a light Northerly gently ruffling the waters and the sun highlighting the colours on the hills above us. So we started to rig, but there were issues here as any drops of water were now frozen and ropes were solid as gas pipes and reluctant to run through blocks and pulleys. A short delay due to the patrol boat driver Peter Hoosen-Owen’s pickup truck’s frozen locks allowed a bit of a thaw and all ropes were running reasonably free by the start of the first race.
